sheet music

I've been a wild rover for many a year
And I've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more

I went into an ale house where I used to drink gin
I told the landlady my bottle was spent
I asked her for a bottle, she answered me nay
Saying customs like yours I can gat any day

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more

I reached in my pocket and pulled out sovereigns bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said I have whiskey and wines of the best
But the answer I gave her was only in jest

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more

I'll go home to my parents, confess what I've done
And ask them to pardon their prodigal son
And when they caress me as all times before
I never will play the wild rover no more

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more

And it's no, nay, never
No, nay, never, no more
Will I play the wild rover
No never no more
